Iain from Northamptonshire now braves the mud as a new convert to cyclo-cross - but he also enjoys a cycling break in the sun. Here's his profile.

Name:

Iain Tingle

Age:

35

From:

Northamptonshire

Club:

Team Milton Keynes

What kind of riding do you do?

Commute, road and cyclo-cross (just started CX was never a fan of the mud but this has really changed my view).

What do you enjoy most about cycling

Getting out, putting in the miles, getting back, CAKE.

What’s your favourite ride?

This year was my first trip to Mallorca and taking on both Sa Calobra and Soller during the week with the good people of Amersham Cycling Club, a real scene of achievement even if standing at the bottom it all looks so daunting.

What’s your top cycling tip to share?

When winter comes, find any chance you can to get out even if it's short and never forget to work on upper body. It's amazing how much something as simple as press-ups can assist your training, it's not all about the legs.

If you had a tandem, who would you like to ride it with

My girlfriend Vicky, we rode one this year on the Tissington Trail and it was a right laugh, so same again please.
